Boat Joinery and Cabinet Making Simplified

£19.99

Product description

Drawing upon his more than 60 years' experience as a boatbuilder/designer, Fred Bingham has revamped his classic Practical Yacht Joinery to appeal to a whole new generation of boaters. This book is about building things of wood, from a new cup rack to a completely new interior, but it isn't just another project book. Bingham wisely assumes that many people want to be told how to perform neat joinerwork rather than what to build. By starting with a simple task, such as a cleat, deck box, or even a tool box, and then proceeding to more ambitious projects, you develop the skills you need to build practically anything you can envision. Bingham's joinery techniques and handy gimmicks (and they appear on nearly every page of the book) were born of trial and error; he provides realistic alternative procedures for many of the projects, telling how to make them by Method A, Method B, and Method C. As thousands of readers of Practical Yacht Joinery discovered, Bingham's gift for providing simple explanations for complex problems can transform a rank beginner who has never held a hammer into a journeyman boat carpenter, and a journeyman carpenter into a true craftsman. Illustrated throughout with diagrams and photos. Excellent condition except for a small brown mark on the fore edge.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
